Main Street Grant Project Update

Tuesday, August 23, 2022 - 5:18pm

On June 28, the Town held the bid opening for the Main Street project and Fred Smith Company was determined to be the lowest responsible bidder at $16,910,000.  On August 2, the Town Board accepted the bid, and the next step is to gain NCDOT approval of the award.  Due to the project expanding in scope and increases in costs resulting from the inflationary environment, the Town sought and was awarded additional grant funds from CAMPO this summer.  Federal grant funds for the project now total $12,040,439.  This project is a realization of the vision established by the Town to create a downtown destination and promote safety, walk-ability, bike-ability, and an engaging business climate along Main Street.  Learn more...
